5 ways to use our nesting containers

Our Ela & Earth stainless steel nesting containers are a household staple. You’ll always find these beauties stored in our fridge, stashed in our pantry and travelling with our family.

Like the name suggests, these clever containers are designed to “nest” inside one another for efficient storage, rather than taking up precious space in your pantry. Available in a set of 4 mixed sizes or a set of 3 small sizes, these eco-friendly food containers also feature our signature silicone lids with botanical engraving - making them beautiful to display in the kitchen, too.

While we may be a little biased, we firmly believe these reusable containers deserve a permanent space in your home. Read on as we share 5 ways to use our Ela & Earth nesting containers below!

Packing snacks

When it comes to convenient snacking, these eco-friendly nesting containers are much-loved by kids and adults alike. We love filling our nesting containers with fresh fruit, veggie sticks, crackers, nuts, trail mix, popcorn and protein balls, just to name a few. Sturdy and lightweight, you’ll find these containers are perfect for both big and little hands.

Holding condiments

From homemade dips and relishes to sauces and salad dressings, our set of 3 small round nesting containers are the perfect size to hold and transport your favourite condiments. Tiny but mighty, these practical containers have a leak-proof silicone lid, meaning they can travel with you everywhere from the office to the beach. Holding 50ml, these compact containers are also small enough to pop inside your lunch box or bento box

Tip: use these containers to store sauces from your favourite takeaway stores to help you cut down on single-use plastics. We frequently use ours for soy sauce and pickled ginger from our local sushi shop.

Pantry organisation

Use our nesting containers to create the ultimate #pantrygoals. Available in both sage green and pearl grey engraved silicone lids, these stylish containers will sit pretty in your pantry (or displayed on your benchtop) while saving you storage space, too.
